as he tribesmen another see the u.s., for instance you would see them as an al qaeda member. the u.s. thinks it's killing an al qaeda member and maybe it is. but he's been a killed on the ground and yemenis seen being killed is in fact the tribesman. this is a challenge that the u.s. obama administration not released all and i would argue that the drones in the airstrikes have not actually solve the problem and they've actually exacerbated the problem the great deal. so not to go on too long, but just let me close with this last scenario. after the christmas day attack 2009, president obama asked his staff to imagine what would happen if al qaeda had been successful and i think that's a very good exercise. and if today al qaeda were able to carry out an attack, even a fairly small one not on the scale of september 11th, but on the scale of christmas day 2009, with the u.s. respond? many people, put myself into a large-scale renovation of yemen would be mistaken that the u.s. has been bombing them and for the past three years and it really doesn't seem to have had the impact of the u.

. and if the state department is saying they never believed that this attack on the 11th of september against the u.s. consulate was a film protest gone awry, think about it -- it's nearly impossible to believe that president obama didn't know. oh, and dimension the state department was watching this unfold in real time? when president obama in his absurd press conference then tried to portray himself as coming to the defense of a damsel in distress, susan rice, saying, quote, republicans should come after me. at that moment, he stumbled into a deeper and more damaging truth than he realized because republicans are rightly going after you, mr. president, because the evidence is mounting that you and your administration knowingly and willfully misled the american people on the benghazi massacre and lying to the american people, perhaps in order to get re-elected. that's a serious offense. joining me with reaction, texas congressman mike conoway, in the closed-door meeting with general petraeus and the author of a brand-new book, a host of war stories. oliver north is here. bring us inside the room. wh

knew from the start the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya was terrorism. that's according to lawmakers who heard his testimony today on capitol hill. we'll have to take their word because the hearings were closed to the public. one republican congressman saying he said government officials changed the c.i.a. talking points about the attack to remove any mention of al-qaeda. >> talking points were drafted with specifically about al-qaeda affiliates, they didn't have it in front of them and they said that was did she it had to go through the process. it seemed unclear. that was taken out. >> earlier on studio b, a democrat, at the same hearing, says general petraeus also told them officials made the changes to protect classified information. >> they didn't want to be specific as to the precise group they thought was responsible or groups because there may have been multiple groups involved, multiple groups of terrorists or extremists. but it was done to prospect classified information and he was very clear this was never done for political purpose. this wasn't manipulated by
to studies, the average household could pay $3500 more in taxes. unemployment in the u.s. which has come down to 7.9% could head back up above 9% by this time next year. the u.s. could join europe which has been hit by a double dip recession. and according to a pugh research/"washington post" poll, you clearly understand the danger of this fiscal cliff. 68% say it will have a major effect on the economy. 21% say just a minor infect. only 2% say no effect. 10% say they don't know which is why you're watching this right now. president obama's solution to all this is to make a deal centered around increasing taxes on the wealthy which will go a good part of the way to raising the $1.6 trillion in new revenue that he wants to raise over the next decade in his attempt to reduce the federal deficit. he wants to let the bush era tax cuts expire. if that happens, the top tax rate on income would jump from 36% to 39%. he likes to say that's where it was during the clinton years. the second top rate would go from 33% to 36%. now this is what president obama campaigned on. he's been vague about the spec

petraeus was on capitol hill today telling lawmakers what he knew about the attack on the u.s. consulate. >> general petraeus' briefing was comprehensive. i think it was important to have it added to our ability to make judgments about what is clearly a failure of intelligence. >> petraeus told lawmakers he believed all along that the terrorists carried out the attacks that killed the u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. they also addressed his resignation. he quit last friday after admitting to an affair with his biographer, paula broadwell. lawmakers said the former cia director apologized and assured him his personal situation that had no baring on theinvestigation. >>> the president and the congressional leaders spent their day today trying to find a budget compromise. if they don't find a way to do it in the next 45 days, huge tax hikes and spending cuts will kick in on january 1. that could send us spiraling into yet another recession. well after today's meeting, congressional leaders seemed confident that they can steer clear away from the fiscal cliff. >> it w

of political solution? and what will the u.s. role be. >> i disagree with a lot of things that was said now. but one thing i very strongly agree. there is no political solution. and there can to the be a political solution because what you have in gaza is an organization dedicated it to the destruction of israel, dedicated to killing of jews. this is what they say openly. i mean this is not an interpretation of what they're saying. this is what they're saying. as long as the threat exists they will fight israel. they are committed to an anti-sellity-- anti-semitic of killing juice jews, it's in their charter n their document t is what they are openly saying. they are not leave israel alone regard will of what is happening. so once israel withdraws totally from the gaza strip they started shelling israeli cities. and i also agree that whatever israel can achieve, and it can achieve quite a lot. it achieved four years of tranquillity, relative tranquillity. but only can achieve relative tranquillity for a while and then it will come up again because the hamas is committed to the destruction o

that there was a very large conspiracy, usually involving figures within the u.s. government, and a massive cover-up. >> this weekend on c-span3, 49 years later, the questions remain. lone gunman, the mob, the cia, castro. what happened in dallas? the assassination of john f. kennedy, 7:30 p.m. eastern and pacific. >> it was in 1982 that judge harold greene issued a decision which led to the breakup of the at&t corp.. that is our topic this week on the "communicators," the impact of that decision 30 years later on the telecommunications. joining us is professor roger noll of stanford, as well as professor jerry hausman of mit, both of whom were involved at various levels in the breakup or the decision to break up at&t. joining us in the washington studio is paul. professor noll, first of all, what with your activity during the breakup of at&t and what led to that decision? >> the antitrust case was formed during the johnson administration the late 1960's and a presidential task force called the telecommunications policy task force. it concluded the telecommunications industry, the part in federal
appointments, an inclination for restraint. i want to appoint judges who understand as a u.s. supreme court explained, that law is something more than the mere -- law is something more than mere will exerted as an act of power. if you think about being governor of a state like florida, your biggest legacy is probably your judges. we appointed about just over 80 judges now so far in 22 months, and so these are the individuals that are beginning to help -- decide whether we have three branches of government. i just remember civics, class, three branches of government, and i made sure everybody always remembers that in my state. the election is over. we may not be happy with the current occupant of the white house, but the question is what are we going to do about it? will you take action or stay on the sidelines? will you join the fight for conservative solutions with states like florida where we are fighting for families by creating jobs, quality education, and keeping the cost of living low? the time for arguing over who caused the problems has ended. now it is the time to break from the ca
. >> and the u.s. and other nations certainly have been urging both sides to show restraint. are you getting the sense at all that it's escalating action instead? >> reporter: i would say from the view that we have down here that it's escalating though at a slower pace than it did at the beginning. as you'll remember this, conflict began when the israelis struck a senior hamas military wing leader, and since then you've had these air strikes. they have escalated, especially during the course of friday. right now it's sort of reached a level where it's pretty high intensity pretty much throughout the entire day. i wouldn't say escalating a lot but still escalating. one of the other things, of course, a telltale sign of an escalation is more and more israeli troops coming in here as well. one of the things that we can say is that there certainly isn't any deescalation and certainly neither of the two sides seem to be willing to take their foot off the gas at this point in time, randi. >> frederik pleitgen in southern israel for us, fred, thank you. >>> we want to show you some live pictures ri
